Crocodile Tail

How's that for a close-up of a crocodile tail? This tail comes in quite handy for these reptiles. When the eating's good, this is where they store a lot of their fat for when the eating's not so good. The tail's also useful for hunting you down in the water.

And don't think you'll be able to wrestle it Steve Irwin-style. The Nile Crocodile has been known to get as large at 20 feet long, and weigh over 2,000 lbs.

The part up really close to the camera looks like a rock. Very cool.

Don't forget, most crocodilians can break legs with those tails.

If it didn't eat you first.
